    Sweet, thanks for the answer...
    I'll bet your inbox is filling up with people begging you to make one for them too! (despite all your previous comments about that idea! :lol:)

    Now... do one in copper ... (I know, I know, too heavy) :)

    Edit: agree with nighttrain... adds an extra dimension of coolness.

    you should mill a design of groves that don't interfere with the existing water tunnel things to help increase surface area

    E.E.L. <-- Thx! :) Can't wait to pull the whole computer apart to get this installed, but it will still be a week or 2... Got some minor things to tend to in the build, and I want everything set up and ready to work on, when I take it apart... So it can be rebuild asap!

    Aon <-- :thumb:

    NightrainSrt4 <-- Thx a lot! I know a lot of ppl would like me to make a huge ass block to cover the surface, but I like it like this... A bit outside the box, and IMHO it definately gives it some personality!

    ModMinded <-- Np m8! :thumb:
    Actually, not a lot of ppl have written... Just a couple, and I'm thinking about helping them out, if it seems like something that would be fun for me to do. I like a challenge, but I'm not spending time doing something for someone else, if I don't have fun doing it!

    Turboshifter <-- Great minds think alike! ;) I had the thought, but I want some mass, not just surface. Surface cools, mass keeps it cool. In my mind I've found a pretty good balance between those two, but I guess we'll see how it performs. :)

    theAlien <-- :thumb:

    It's running loop in the kitchen now, with the CPU and NB block too... Gonna post a cpl of pics of that later, just to fill something in here! :)

    That rules! - YOU rule!
    I thought you were going to make a single part top too. This is better.:D
    Close that test loop up! You can't pressure test like that!

    Cheaps <-- Thx m8, glad you like it! :thumb:

    :wallbash: How could I be THAT stupid??? The impeller didn't want to turn when I hooked it up, so I broke the top off of the pump... Forgot all about the pressure that is supposed to be INSIDE... Thx Cheaps, just fixed it with modders favorite! Glue, and a cd-cover! :lol:

    Edit: It had atmospheric pressure... :p

    i see

    amazing waterblock
    i just noticed the maze designs in the fluid areas
    they look great!
    im not so sure about the plexi tops though. I think one peice would look cleaner.
    maybe its just my OCD :worried:

    Well, I'd like to see a one piece cover as well but I like your solution and I don't think it's worth the time, effort and money to build the one-piece just to see how it looks. :)

    slisgrinder <-- Uhm... The copperblock itself is the same size as the one in aluminum, 60 x 60 x approx 10 mm. If you wanna know the specs. on the acryllic top, holes and so on, let me know, but I don't know the difference between LGA775 and LGA1366... :)

    60x60, not bad since that is a lot of working area, and the heatspreader on the LGA 775 is 28.2mm x 28.2mm

    the new LGA 1366 is just slightly bigger in all aspects, heatspreader is 32mm x 35mm and the holes for mounting the heatsink is 80mm x 80mm from each other measuring from the center of the holes. The holes itself are 4mm in diameter. I just needto find out the height from the surface of the mobo to the top of the processor's heatspreader then i can figure out the acrylic top size...

    just another question, how did you mount the waterblock to the mobo???
    also how thick is the copper base under the machining???

    slisgrinder <-- :read: :eyebrow:

    Anywhoooo... The waterblock is mounted via the acryllic top. There are pictures earlier in the thread. About page 15-17 I would think... That should gie you an idea of how it's mounted.

    I milled it 8mm deep, so the bottom is a little less than 2 mm thick in the block itself...

    Just the way i designed it in solidworks...
    1 cm thick total, with 8mm deep milling...


    I did look through the entire thread, but skimmed read the thing (so much reading) but had a look through the pics

    thankx again...

    Just a small update... Waaaay overdue for what it is! :lol:

    I really wanted to get the window for the side done, since that gaping hole has been bugging me for a year now..

    Btw, I had to make a new top for the CPU block, as the old one has the "Xtreme2O" logo, which I don't want anymore...

    [​IMG]

    So... 2 ways to go with the window, the easy way:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not even worth mentioning, so let's get to it, milling and filing.

    Sharp corners:

    [​IMG]
    Getting ready to file the corners:

    [​IMG]

    Corner done:

    [​IMG]

    Inserted, and looking pretty good IMHO:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There you go, one less thing to worry about, one step closer to finished mod... As if there is such a thing... :lol:

    I'm looking to pulling a computer home from work in the next couple of days, so I can get this project pulled apart, and still have something to write my log on... :) And also I don't wanna rush anything to get it together again, just because I get the shakes from not having Bit-Tech near! :thumb:

    I just need to write me a little list of what I must remember to do, before assembling the whole thing again, then it's ready to be torn to pieces! :)

    Cyprio <-- Thx m8! I had a little sneak peak at another mod in here before I made it... If you catch my drift! :thumb:

    So what's next for you? What can we expect from the master of the Mediterranean? :)

    I'm gunning for this to be able to stand up to your mod, though it's gonna be a battle! But hey, it keeps me moving! :D
